I’ve been taking photos* of the nighttime ice cream truck since last year. It’s not just any ice cream truck, but it’s the ice cream truck that drives by my house at around ten at night. The ice cream truck song doesn’t play this late at night, but I can hear its motor from inside my house — it doesn’t sound like a car, it sounds like an ice cream truck — and I go outside and take its picture.I’ve taken manyphotos of the nighttime ice cream truck and I’ve been making note of the date and time of the ice cream truck sightings. Sometimes the ice cream truck idles by my house, sometimes it drives by. Someone today was asking if I ordered the ice cream truck’s ice cream in a waffle cone or in a cup. I have never actually eaten anything from this ice cream truck. I just take its photo. A couple people have said this truck probably serves “ice cream” rather than ice cream, because of the late hour and the interesting neighbourhood. The above photo is what the nighttime ice cream truck looked like last night at 10:10 p.m.

This is a photo of too many things at once.* The reflection off the glass came out really well. The sky looks just like that and the other side of the street looks just like that and the yellow sign is just the same, but in reverse. I was trying to get a photo of the lady mannequins in the window. They’re wearing their Caribana costumes. These mannequins will be in the Caribana parade. I think they changed the name of Caribana so now it’s called Carribean Party Week, or something like that. Those green window decals need to go.
When I asked my neighbour why he hung CDs in his garden, he said he was making a disco. Ha ha! This video is not of my neighbour’s garden. It’s a video from someone else who hung CDs in their own garden. Hanging CDs has nothing to do with disco, actually. It’s supposed to keep the birds away. I like that this video guy said, “I think it’s kinda neat looking.” I’ll have to agree.
